    You can shop at Newbury street (it's a short walk from the campus), Cambridgeside Galleria, or Quincy Market. You can also visit the science museum or the aquarium.

    Not a whole lot to do for nightlife unless you're 21. You can always explore the city and what it has to offer, just make sure you can afford the T!

    You can go to hockey games, or to the multitude of events that different clubs and cultural groups hold on campus every week. They are advertised at the GSU (Student Union.) You also have easy access to the city of Boston which has a great variety of cultural opportunities such a museums and historical sites. There is great shopping on Newbury Street and at the Prudential Center. There are tons of restaurants. Some great Italian ones are located at the North End, along with Mike's Pastries and Modern Pastries, both of which are a must try.

    One of the reasons I chose BU is because its literally located in downtown Boston. There's lots to do! Boston has so much history, and I have (on many occasions) taken a few hours to go to the Museum of Fine Arts and Isabella Stewart Gardiner Museum (BU students have free admission) and many other places. Boston is your playground when you attend BU.
